Joi Ito to direct MIT Media Lab

I saw Joi Ito this summer at Foo Camp and I captured this video of DJ Patil showing him a chart of his social graph. Colored circles connect his network in Dubai, Japan and the United States, with other circles here and there, each representing the life of a person who has come to know Joi in some way:
